It’s very common for first-time customers to ask themselves ‘How do I buy glasses online?’. We know your first time may be a little confusing, so to help, we have developed a guide to help you start on the right foot. Follow these simple guides and you’ll become an expert shopper the first time around:


1. Choose Your Frames


The first step is choosing your frames. If you already know which frame you’re going to get, you can type it in the search bar and find the color you want. If you have an open mind and want to indulge in going over our variety of frames, it’s a little easier when you keep the following things in mind:



Whether its rectangular, aviator, round or cat-eye, choose something to compliment your style and features.



Too-narrow will make your face look wider, while a too-wide frame will make your face look narrower. Unless you’re going for oversized frames or something super snug for fashion reasons, it’s always recommended to choose a frame that will fit you well. If you have an old, comfortable pair, look at the measurements on the temple arm as guidelines.



This comes down to your personal taste. Most frames have several color options, so you’re never “stuck” with just one choice.


 2. Choose Your Lens Type


If the frame was chosen has a lot to do with stylish preferences, lenses are the more functional aspect of your new glasses. In short, what do you need them for?

Prescription or Non-Prescription

The choice here is pretty simple, whether you’re shopping for eyeglasses or sunglasses you have to choose: buying prescription glasses online or getting non-prescription.

Prescription type

What do you need your glasses for? The most important part of choosing your lenses is selecting the right ones for your visual needs. Depending on your eyes and your personal needs, you may require single-vision or multi-vision lenses, as prescribed by your optometrist. Before moving on, you’ll provide your prescription, either by filling it out online or uploading it.

Coating & Customization

Here functionality and purpose come into play. For eyeglasses, you can add protective coatings like anti-scratch, anti-reflection, water-repellant, and UV protective coatings are just a few of the options available to you to protect your eyes and your glasses from the elements and your daily wear and tear. If you are buying sunglasses, there are even more choices such as tint, gradient, and reflective lenses.


3. Complete Your Order

Once you have everything selected and input, double-check all of the values one more time to ensure you are ordering the correct frame, lenses, coatings, etc. We also notify you about your order every step of the way via email: You’ll know when your glasses are in production, when they are shipped, etc. We hope this guide answers all your questions on how to order glasses online, there’s a first time for everything! With those simple steps, you will have a new pair of fashionable glasses on your doorstep in seven to 14 business days!
